Storm Troopers in Training in December 1916
German assault tactics were evolving in this still early period of storm trooper training. Many units were experimenting with assault tactics during this time. Some divisions favored special assault units that remained separate from the regular infantry to be used only for certain situations, Others favored training all their infantry in this style of tactics . These men were still considered elite troops at this time. They wear the 1910 modified jackets and the grenades are practice grenades. All but the nco carry grenade sacks.
